If you go with all male, then it really has to be all male. A single females of any species can cuse big problems as all the male vie for her attention. Less so with acei, labs and rusties, but still not something I would suggest. If you do go with all male, the best way is one male per species, and not mixing species that look similar.

There is great l;ittle article in the Library section about an all male Mbuna tank.

You don't have to interested in breeding to keep males and females in the same tank. If you just leave any holding females in the tank to spit, nature will take its course and most if not all of the fry will get eaten by the adults. Some of the most interesting and entertaining behavior centers around breeding.
